Yes. I think some of his play calling has been money. In my "assessments" each week, I state times that I disagree with Sherman. However, that happens with every OC. Sherman has done a terrific job under the circumstances.

WVdolphan "Ireland gets it.
And those who also get it, know that Ireland gets it. Those who are clueless are still concerned about cornfed and the running game"
WVDOLPHAN "The last thing this team should be worried about is the OC(offensive corn). When you add it all up, its really a pretty solid OC"
Sumlin was a helluva coach at Houston too. Had one bad year at 5-7 when the team was plagued by injuries (including Case Keenum missing the entire season with a torn ACL). And he his first full recruiting class at A&M is ranked higher than any of Sherman's ever were
I like Sherman and having him back for another season would be the best thing for Philbin and Tannehill, but there are always OC's available. We will be fine either way.
shermans not a damn good nfl oc...or at least he's not a very innovative one to date...some of that may be protecting his qb and some of it i'm sure is what he has to work with at some positions but there's no excuses for not running rub routes and picks in the red zone to get these no win red zone wrs off coverage every once in a while...
that said i think if sherm left it would hurt tannehill in the short term at least...but then again i bet that qb coach that came over with tannehill and sherm from a & m could transition to oc in this o and not miss all that much...
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
We can't really say Sherman did a mediocre job...he had a mediocre line up on offense
This offense stunk for a better part of the year for multiple reasons, Sherman being one of them. Hopefully our idiot GM will see the value in finally adding some more playmakers, and we will see what Sherman can do. I can't wait for the day our offense becomes explosive. It's been a long time since we can say we are dangerous from anywhere on the field.
